We stayed at the Brasenose Arms last night. We arrived in time for an evening meal and really enjoyed it. The room was lovely and we had a good nights sleep in the comfy bed. Breakfast was included in price and there were several options available. We both had cereals and cooked breakfast served by the very friendly staff. There... More

Everyone else's food was very good and plentiful. We were on a narrow boat and moored a few hundred yards away. The pub allows dogs in the bar and... More

Short walk from the canal, friendly attentive staff and good food in a proper pub. The menu has something for everyone and there is a good selection of beers. Hard to fault overall and would recommend to anyone passing on a narrow boat, with a dog.

I arrived late and stayed for only one night. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. I would recommend this inn to anyone and will use again when next in the area.

Beautiful building in absolutely gorgeous settings, dog friendly and with great and friendly and accommodating staff. I had a rack of ribs followed by the vanilla and chocolate brownie with ice cream, both of which are worth returning for on their own. Good selection of real ales and wines. The room was lovely, really well equipped with the usual teas,... More

Arrived late from London and they held the kitchen open for us and made us feel very relaxed and welcome. Great food and atmosphere and lovely accommodation. The food was fresh and tasty with large portions and the service was excellent. They even allowed us a cheeky lay in as we over slept and missed the check out time! Thank... More

Stayed one night. Good choice of well-kept beer and good selection of reasonably priced food. Breakfast excellent - especially the fresh-ground coffee. Room and facilities adequate. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff.

Have been here several times but not recently and always had excellent meals. We had three meals and they were all dry, overcooked, tastless and felt like they had been kept warm for a long time. (We were there at 7pm, not late). The food at this pub has definately gone down in the last six months and we will... More

Only stayed one night whilst visiting family but received a warm welcome, room was clean and comfortable, breakfast cooked to order and very tasty. Room had kettle and range of drinks, T.V. but walls are thin. Had read the reviews and taken ear plugs. Slept very well in the comfy bed.

Here they are, sitting outside the pub, for the photo on the back of their 1973 album 'Nine'. Contemporary en-suite accommodation is available in a recently converted barn. Six rooms are available - 2 Doubles, 2 Twins (1 family) and 2 Singles all with en suite showers, TV and hospitality trays. Ground floor rooms have disabled access. All rooms are strictly non-smoking. ... more   less
